LGBT Family Law Institute

The Law Office of Jennifer R. Cochran P.C. is pleased to announce that Jennifer Cochran will be attending the National LGBT Bar Association's annual Lavender Law Conference in August in D.C.  She has also been accepted to the LGBT Family Law Institute 2012 during the Lavender Law Conference.

"The Institute, a joint venture of the LGBT Bar and the National Center for Lesbian Rights, allows experienced LGBT family law practitioners to share collective wisdom and to discuss cutting-edge legal strategies for representing members of the LGBT community on such matters as family creation, assisted reproductive technology, ethics, interstate and international parentage issues, estate planning, collaborative law, transgender issues, dissolution of relationships, and elder law. Registration is limited to 125 participants whose work history qualifies them as seasoned attorneys. To guarantee that the discourse remains at a high level, and to ensure that all participants are able to contribute meaningfully to the conversation, attorneys must apply to be accepted to the institute. Applicants are selected based on their experience with LGBT family creation, protection and dissolution."
